Express your love with our engagement rings and sentimental jewellery
Indeed, the crisis has meant that many are seeing their partnerships in a new light, and have been prompted to make their commitment official or renew it.
Of course, the most momentous way to mark this occasion is with a ring that both reflects a loved one’s personality and symbolizes the bond between you. Even if marriage isn’t what you have in mind or even if you are already married, a piece of jewellery can be a powerful way to show someone just what they mean to you.
Since ancient Egyptian times, rings have been worn as a sign of commitment, with their circular shape signifying endless love. In ancient Egypt, braided bands of reeds would be placed on the fourth finger of the left hand, symbolic for what was believed at the time to be the vena amoris, said to run from the fourth finger to the heart (though it’s now known that veins from all fingers follow the same path.)
By Roman times, metal rings had become more commonplace as a symbol of commitment, with gold rings becoming popular by the 9th Century. While wedding and engagement rings might have since evolved into highly precious pieces, the sentiment remains the same. And today, expressing your love through a piece of jewellery doesn’t have to look traditional.

If you’re seeking out a truly edgy engagement ring, Delfina Delettrez’s Linked Dots Diamond Ring fits the bill. Crafted in cool, 18k white gold, this ring fuses three bands: a single band dotted with white diamonds that sits in the middle of the ring, bordered by two open-ended bands, each set with a diamond at both ends. A modern take on the classic diamond ring.
